13 Celebrities Who Totally Slayed Their Halloween Costumes

31 Oct 2017 by Johanna Teo

As per tradition of the year’s spookiest event, Hollywood turned out in full force with their Halloween costumes. There were celebrities dressed to the nines, film characters and other legendary faces. Let’s dive right in to the best costumes of 2017! 

#1 Sarah Hyland as Dustin from Stranger Things

Yep. Stranger Things have definitely happened. 

#2 Kim Kardashian as Cher

Stepping out with Hollywood BFF Jonathan Cheban as Sonny Bono and Cher, Kim’s get-up even received a nod of approval from Cher herself! 

#3 Jessica Alba as Juno

Incorporating her baby bump into this year’s outfit, Jessica Alba dressed up as Juno from the hit movie of the same name. Needless to say, this mama slayed Halloween!

#4 Karlie Kloss as Marilyn Monroe

A vision in white, this leggy supermodel channelled her Marilyn Monroe best.

#5 Demi Lovato as Selena Quintanilla

Demi’s homage to the late Selena Quintanilla is definitely one of our favourite Halloween transformations on this list. From her purple jumpsuit to her hoop earrings to her dramatic makeup, Demi bore an uncanny resemblance to the iconic singer. 

#6 Eric Andre as Cardi B

The world’s been swept up in Cardi B fever and this comedian did perfectly on his hilarious version of the rapper, down to her swagger-filled poses, albeit looking kinda uncomfortable. 

#7 Kristen Bell as Elsa

 

When your daughter demands you BOTH be ELSA for Halloween…you GRIN AND FORKING BEAR IT. #halloween

A post shared by kristen bell (@kristenanniebell) on

Looks like 2015’s Frozen is still a popular choice in the Bell household. Too bad Kristen’s daughter insisted they both dress up as Elsa and not Anna – who was voiced by Kristen herself. Awkward… 

#8 Dua Lipa as Harry Potter

 

A post shared by DUA LIPA (@dualipa) on

A truly dedicated performer, Dua Lipa committed to her Harry Potter costume all the way – even if that meant having to go onstage as the Boy who Lived. Gotta admit, it was kinda weird seeing her in full Hogwarts attire, but Dua’s performances from that day ended up giving us all life. 

#9 Beyoncé as Lil Kim and Jay Z as Notorious B.I.G

 

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

The Carter fam is known for their sick Halloween costumes. And this year’s no difference, with the Hollywood It couple channelling another powerhouse duo: the Notorious B.I.G and Lil’ Kim. 

#10 Kourtney Kardashian as Michael Jackson

There’s gotta be someone dressing up as the late King of Pop every Halloween, and this year, Kourtney Kardashian steps up the plate. Kim K’s Madonna costume is worth a mention as well! 

#11 Halsey & G-Eazy as The Great Gatsby 

 

A post shared by halsey (@iamhalsey) on

Halsey’s version of Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby is definitely worth gasping over. G-Eazy’s Jay Gatsby however… pales in comparison.

#12 Ellie Goulding as Dolly Parton 

 

A post shared by elliegoulding (@elliegoulding) on

Looking near unrecognisable in her Dolly Parton getup, Ellie Goulding rocks her sequinned cowboy boots and blinged up cowgirl-style dress like a natural. Could this be a hint of the musical genre she’s steering towards? 

#13 Cardi B as Cruella De Ville

 

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

The newly engaged rapper perches on her throne as Disney’s Cruella De Ville (or Bruella, according to Cardi), looking totally bomb while at it.

Niall Horan's Headed To Singapore In June Next Year!

27 Oct 2017 by Johanna Teo

If you’ve been harbouring that flicker of hope that Niall Horan would come to Singapore for an official show, your wish is coming true! 

The last time Niall Horan visited Singapore, it was for a super secret showcase where a few fans and media had the opportunity to hear the Irish singer perform a few songs off his latest album, Flicker. It was a total dream, but the only pity was that Niall couldn’t play a full show for all of his fans in Singapore.

Local Sheerios will be pleased to hear that Ed Sheeran’s doctors have given him the green light for the Singapore leg of his world tour!

When Ed Sheeran broke his arm back in mid-October, thousands of get well soon wishes poured in from fans all over the world. But seeing as the crooner was scheduled to kickstart his Asian tour in Taipei just a few days later, the main question on everybody’s mind was: would Ed still be able to perform? 

 

A post shared by Ed Sheeran (@teddysphotos) on

Fans can now breathe a sigh of relief because even though the doctors had initially advised Ed to cancel his tour to let his arm recuperate, they’ve given him the go ahead – which makes Ed’s Singapore shows on 11 and 12 November his very first pit stop! The rest of his tour dates in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Mumbai and Dubai will go ahead as scheduled, while the Osaka, Tokyo and Manila tour dates will be rescheduled to April 2018.

Unfortunately, the concerts in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jarkata have to be cancelled because they’ve (in Ed’s words) “been impossible to reschedule for next year”. However, he reassures fans that he is “working hard with my team to try and come back to these places soon as I can to see all of you”, so chin up Sheerios! 

In the meantime, watch Ed Sheeran perform broken arm parodies to his very own hit songs! “When your arms don’t work like they used to before…” Hilarious.

7 Times Camila Cabello's 'Havana' Music Video Left Us Shook

25 Oct 2017 by Bryan Yeong

It’s finally here! Our October cover star Camila Cabello’s musical ode to her heritage ‘Havana’ is scorching up the charts with an epic mini-movie of a music video to boot.

‘Havana’ has become Camila Cabello’s biggest solo hit so far. Already amassing career peaks of #2 on the UK and Australia charts, there’s without a doubt that the hilarious 6 minute-long video clip she just released for it will propel the track’s success further. We take a look at the highlights from the video, where Camila takes on multiple starring roles.

When we thought it was going to be a Telenova 

The video opens with Camila catching her lover in bed with her best friend – all in classic dramatic fashion. The dialogue is also exaggeratedly cheesy in the style of telenovas (Latin American soap operas) and as the screen fades out, we realise that Nerd Camila is actually watching Telenova Camila as a character on a fictional show. A plot twist within the first 2 minutes!

When she revealed her inner actress

Before we cut to Nerd Camila though, can we just say Camila is showing some serious acting chops in her fictional telenova? Going from melodramatic shocked to distraught, Camila plays off every emotion with enough convincing to not count her out on making a proper screen debut in the future.

When her Abuelita dishes some advice

So Nerd Camila happens to be a homebody who loves being with her abuelita (Spanish for ‘Grandmother’), but her granny actually wants her to experience the outside world, even suggesting to follow her on-screen sister to party. Erm… we’re pretty sure some of us wish our parents could be as open-minded to this notion, and let us stay outdoors without curfews – if only!

When she lit up the stage

After her granny dozes off at home, Camila sneaks off to watch a late-night movie titled ‘Havana’ on her own, where Camila – surprise! – is also the film’s feisty leading lady in red! Movie star Camila enthrals on stage performing her spicy single, and it’s evident that Camila is a natural in front of the cameras.

When she busts out her dance moves

Think Camila would just stand on stage and sing? Not a chance. Flirting with a fellow dancer in the Latin club, Camila shows off her salsa-inspired moves of shimmies and shakes, accentuated by her flapper dress. It’s common knowledge that Camila could nail choreography since her Fifth Harmony days, but who knew she could burn up a dancefloor like this?!

When she made a declaration of self-love

Movie star Camila eyes her love interest and follows him outside in the fictional film’s climax scene, but in a surprising twist, rejects him and declares she loves herself more than being together. “That’s it?! That’s the ending? You end up alone?”, yells Nerd Camila from the cinema seats. “Hey sweetie. If you don’t like my story, go write your own!”, actress Camila fires back, breaking the fourth wall. We’ve seen multiple pop stars play different roles in music videos, but never this amusing!

When she embraces life

Feeling inspired after watching the movie, Camila proceeds outside and breaks into a dance just as her crush cycles by and crashes. She helps him up, and the two launch into a romantic sidewalk dance – finding love and signalling a happy ending for our Latina dreamer!

Check out the music video’s rad poster, and watch the full music video below!

Skechers Singapore

We’ve seen pop stars documenting their artistic processes behind their latest projects, but one that stands out among the rest is Demi Lovato’s recent YouTube Original Simply Complicated.

Taking an unabashed magnifying glass look at the powerhouse diva’s troubled past, the outcome is a startling reveal that digs deep into her truth, and reminds us all that we really don’t know what goes on in our idols’ lives behind the glitz and glamour facade. Sitting down to touch on everything from her musical growth to her publicised breakup with Wilmer Vanderrama, no topic is left untouched. We highlight five moments from the feature we were surprised to discover, and which made us feel for Demi even more.

Addiction Battles

Considerably the largest plot point of the documentary is Demi’s admittance that she’s still not as mentally strong as most might think. Demi last did a similar documentary back in 2012 titled Demi Lovato: Stay Strong, but confessed this time that she was still on drugs during that phase – a shocking revelation considering how she was advocating her sobriety back then. While Demi has come clean and is now five years into her sobriety, she still loses her battle against eating disorders from time to time, triggered by missing her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Vanderrama. Its a stark reminder that even our favourite inspirational idols fall victim to their inner demons sometimes – and the first step of overcoming personal turmoils is by acknowledging them.

Love Confessionals

The media loves to speculate about celebrities’ love lives, but Demi is quick to announce that she’s single and loving it right now, going as far as to unashamedly dish that she’s on dating app Raya (a platform reserved for famous people) which points out that even stars have trouble when it comes to finding the right partner. But her heart will always have a soft spot for ex-of-six-years, Wilmer Vanderrama, and Demi bravely confronts the fact that she might never find someone that compares to him. Aww… we’re rooting for you, single Demi!

Silent Struggles

Other shocking truths were unraveled when Demi revealed that she once got so drunk until she threw up in the car while on the way to the airport en route for a performance on American Idol, where she sang while still hungover. ” I felt like that was a moment in my career where I didn’t care. I just knew that I needed to get high to get through what I was going through a that point”, she shockingly confessed.

Elsewhere, Demi’s manager Phil McIntyre divulged that during Demi’s stint as a judge on the second season of The X Factor US, she was actually living in a house void of any alcohol or drugs and had no access to her phone. We can’t imagine what juggling mentor duties on a reality competition with personal challenges would feel like, but the struggle must’ve been real for Demi during that period, while she feigned her confidence in front of the cameras throughout.

Musical Prowess

We all know Demi can hit some insane sky-high notes, but in the studio, who knew Demi had a perfectionist side? While recording ‘You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore’, a track off her phenomenal new album Tell Me You Love Me, Demi demands for more takes to nail every line and note, despite her producer already giving the green-light for the track. The result is an obviously flawless delivery, and we’d be surprised if Demi’s latest musical offerings don’t get a Grammy nod at the upcoming awards ceremony next year.

Road To Recovery

 

The documentary closes off with positivity where we witness Demi truly embracing her recovery with honesty. And a place she attributes her return to form and forgetting about her heartbreak and addiction issues? The gym. Demi has always been one of the ultimate #Fitspo celebs, but watching her throw punches and flips in MMA and Brazilian Jujitsu with fervour really is something else. Demi’s decision to be brutally honest about her life truly serves as a beacon of hope and encouragement that all of us can get through the toughest of times, and we wish more pop stars would embrace and share their honesty like Demi has.
